Dinner parties are the best thing in the whole entire world. My heart actually craves time with my family and friends. The best way to connect with them, in my opinion, is over a shared meal. Everyone piled into the … Continue reading

What fun plans to you have for Mother’s Day? With Sunday just four short days away, now is a good time to set up something special if you haven’t already. Here in town, Baylor graduation falls on the same weekend as Mother’s Day, making it one long weekend of celebrations and festivities. But rather than lumping both events together, be sure to show your mom how much you appreciate her by doing something just for her.
One such idea would be a Mother’s Day brunch in her honor! This doesn’t have to be a big soiree, but she’s sure to love having her family gathered around over the table sharing a delicious meal. And with that tasty combination of breakfast foods and lunch goodies, brunch is simply the best of both worlds.
If you go this route, keep your decor and menu simple and fresh. Covering a table with mom’s favorite fresh flowers and lovely springtime patterns will definitely catch her eye. For a fun added touch, break out the fancy china! Your mom is totally worth the extra effort.
For a fool-proof brunch menu, include a variation of a breakfast classic – French toast. Leah’s recipe for blueberry stuffed French toast is a great deviation if you want to jazz up the original a bit. Get creative with presentation, too! I love these individual toast slices with maple syrup in shot glasses. While something like this adds an element of class to a larger event, thoughtful details like this won’t go unnoticed for an intimate affair, either. Consider placing individual milk bottles at each place setting, if your guests love their calcium! You can upcycle old Starbucks frappucino glass bottles if your milkman hasn’t been delivering regularly, too.
Individual stacks of pancakes are sure to be another crowd pleaser. Parfaits, mini quiches and egg and bacon breakfast sliders are other tasty ideas for a breakfast-themed get together.
Although it’s easy to obsess over details and get a little carried away, a Mother’s Day brunch doesn’t have to be elaborate. Make mom her favorite treats and spend quality time with her. While presentation can be fun, it’s always the thought that truly matters.
Don’t worry – if the very thought of cooking breakfast of any kind is slightly overwhelming, we’ve got you covered. Come on in and sample one of our scrumptious breakfast items, served all day long. Whatever you decide to do that day, be sure to spend it celebrating mom. She deserves it!
